At the ever-current Daily Mail, Sarah Vine asks the question:
Why are this season’s shoes hideously ugly and expensive? If I didn’t know better, I’d say it’s like the designers are laughing at us.
You don’t know better, and they are laughing at you.
I have long held the opinion that most fashion designers, being homosexualists, really hate and despise women. So they design ugly clothing and shoes, and over-charge for these foul things in the certain knowledge that brainless wealthy women and celebrities will buy them just to have the over-hyped brand name on their bodies.
So much do I despise this whole business that I can safely say this: if I arrived to pick up a date and she was wearing any — and I mean any — of the shoes pictured in the article, I’d ask her to go back and change into something prettier and more flattering; because if I know anything at all, it’s that there is no woman alive whose feet and legs would be flattered by wearing these excrescences.
And Mrs. Vine knows this, as her final words reveal:
But really, the truth is it’s laziness, greed and a lack of imagination. These kinds of styles are cheap and easy to mass-produce.
They require zero skill or craftsmanship.
And they appeal to the only people who seem to matter to designers these days — that is to say celebrities, influencers and pop stars who don’t care what they wear, so long as it gets them noticed.
Quite right. Here are some classics:
Nothing to be ashamed of, in any of them.
